New & Notable

  • President Monaco

    Three decades ago, a team of researchers—including future Tufts President Anthony P. Monaco—combed through millions of DNA letters to find the flawed gene responsible for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Here’s how their work led to the first-ever FDA-approved drug for treating the deadly disease.
